In the heart of downtown New Haven, Connecticut, Olea offers an innovative interpretation of Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine. Chef Manuel Romero and his team explore these flavors in their food, wine, and cocktails, locally sourcing many products and importing specialty items from the Mediterranean region. The restaurant takes its name from a genus of about forty species, including the olive, in the family Oleaceae, native to temperate and tropical regions of Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australasia.

Kuleto's serves distinctive California ~ Italian cuisine featuring ingredients prepared in unusual combinations.<br />The atmosphere is a combination of old San Francisco aura, Italian conviviality and contemporary vitality with high vaulted ceilings, genuine Italian marble floors with dark wood and warm lighting.

"You read about Kuleto's pretty much everywhere you ask and at nearly every hotel concierge. While very GOOD, it is a bit of an old school 'white table cloth waiter in a vest' type of place. If you're looking for something 'rustic' or with a more modern twist, this sin't the spot. That said, for a prime location right downtown, it's all in all very good (i DID have a rather quirky waiter which made for a somewhat strange dining experience, but that's another review!)"
